I know on this forum we straddle both sides of environmental issues.
This is a very significant change being proposed and affects many
sections of the PCT. See the Great Old Broads website for details
http://www.greatoldbroads.org/PredatorControlAlert.html . Some of the
* allowing the use of poisons including cyanide M-44 devices in wilderness
* allowing aircraft landings and use of motor vehicles for predator
control in wilderness
* killing local predator populations instead of targeting only
offending individual(s)
* allowing predator control as a tool for achieving game management purposes

Should reduce the need for bear cannisters!
